Cali underground rap music, diverse multi-ethnic environment and upbringing, Oak Park Sacramento Ca (the hood and the people in it), Sacramento High School, McClatchy High School, liberal ideology. Experience in intra-prejudice. Demanding personality. Firm emotions in concerns involving equal treatment and fairness. HUGE love of animals, ART, MUSIC. Love of culture and history. Catholic school, Christian school, Public School, various churches….mix all that up and you get me. It’s why I can love opera, relate to rap, and sing with pop. It’s why I hate guns, but wish every black person had one. It’s why I can understand the argument for and against blacks saying “nigga,” and can ask white people why they even think their opinions on blacks using it is needed. It’s why I KNOW you can tighten your boot straps, work hard, and always be poor. It’s why I can relate to discrimination against any person for any reason. It’s why I acknowledge a higher being, but hate how we have manipulated him/her/it to be what we want.
Don’t judge me. I am secure in my thoughts and opinions. I am also still learning. #runandgotellthat
